Genworth’s 2018 Cost of Care study shows only a slight variance in average senior care costs throughout this region of Florida. Assisted living expenses in Miami-Dade County ($3,350) fall just $150 under the state’s monthly average of $3,500, while to the north, expenses in Port St. Lucie ($3,620) and the Sebastian area ($3,524) are only slightly higher. Across the state, on a comparable section of Florida’s Gulf Coast, assisted living costs vary more dramatically, ranging from $3,400 in Punta Gorda to $5,448 in the Naples area, which is one of the area’s premier vacation destinations.
Note: Senior care cost data wasn’t available specifically for Miami-Dade County, so data for the overlapping Miami area was used for comparisons.
The Cost of Assisted Living in Surrounding Areas
Depending on the type of services required, the cost of senior care can vary considerably in Miami-Dade County, with nursing home care ($8,699) nearly seven times more expensive than adult day health services ($1,408) and over twice as expensive as assisted living ($3,350). While in-home services are generally comparable in price to assisted living in this county, the cost for a home health aide or homemaker services can vary significantly depending on the number of hours services are required each week. Additional factors to consider when weighing in-home care against residential services are costs associated with maintaining a home, including mortgage or rent, HOA fees, utilities and household maintenance.

Florida’s Medicaid program provides qualified seniors with comprehensive health care coverage. Services are administered by Florida’s Managed Medical Assistance program and include visits to a primary care physician or specialist for preventative and acute care, inpatient hospital stays, long-term care, such as nursing home, home health services and adult day health care, and prescription medications. An applicant’s medical and functional needs determine what coverage is offered.

Medicaid-eligible seniors in need of long-term care may benefit from Florida’s SMMC LTC program. Qualified applicants are assigned a case manager and professionally assessed, and they may receive benefits, including, but not limited to, assisted living services, medical equipment, skilled nursing and personal emergency alert systems. The program aims to enable seniors to receive the care they need while maintaining as much independence as possible.
Medicaid-eligible Florida residents aged 65 and older or disabled persons 64 and under may apply for SMMC LTC. The program is designed specifically for individuals requiring a nursing facility level of care and has strict income requirements. Combined monthly income and assets must not exceed $2,313 for single applicants or $4,626 for couples.
To begin the process, seniors can schedule an initial assessment via the Elder Helpline at (800) 262-2243 and request a screening for home- and community-based services. Basic information, including the applicant’s monthly income and required care needs are required during the application process.
Optional State Supplementation Program
For low-income seniors who currently live in a residential care community, assistance to offset the cost of room and board is available through the Optional State Supplementation program. The OSS stipend varies, depending on what type of care the senior receives, with a $78.40 monthly maximum for each individual.
Applicants must be 65 or older to qualify and should make no more than $752.40 monthly. For couples, the monthly income limit is $1,504.80. Personal asset limits adhere to Medicaid guidelines.
To start the application process or to learn more about OSS, seniors should contact ACCESS Florida.
Program for All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly
Miami-Dade seniors who qualify for nursing home care through Medicaid may choose to receive alternative long-term services directly in their assisted living facility through PACE.

To qualify, individuals must be 55 or older, Medicaid- or Medicare and Medicaid dual-eligible and live within the PACE Miami-Dade service area. Qualified applicants must also be able to safely reside in a community setting. Medical eligibility is determined by Florida’s CARES program.
